​Geoff Meaden is elected as our third Ashford Borough Councillor

Following a by election on August the 19th, Geoff Meaden was elected as ward member for Downs North. This gives us three strong voices on the council and more influence on various committees. Geoff is co-chair of Ashford Green Party, chair of CPRE,  and worked as principle lecturer on geography at Canterbury Christchurch University, where he also ran a research unit that concentrated on the use of computer mapping to help manage world fish stocks. He is now continuing this research work on a part time basis for the United Nations.  Geoff’s main interests are in transport, land-use policy, conservation and water supply problems. He also takes a very active interest in Climate Change and local planning issues.  Geoff joins Cllr. Steve Campkin and Cllr. Liz Wright – both ward members for Willesborough.
